Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

605 ILCS 5/6-313

    (605 ILCS 5/6-313) (from Ch. 121, par. 6-313)
    Sec. 6-313. In case the highway commissioner, or upon appeal from his decision, the county superintendent of highways, shall finally determine against the advisability of the proposed laying out, widening, alteration or vacation of such township or district road, such order shall have the effect to annul and revoke all proceedings and assessments, releases and agreements in respect to damages growing out of the proceedings upon the petition aforesaid. In case the commissioner or county superintendent affirms such prior proceedings, he shall make an order to be signed by him, declaring such road to be laid out, widened, altered or vacated as a public highway and which order shall contain or have annexed thereto a definite description of the line of such road, together with the plat thereof. The highway commissioner or county superintendent, as the case may be, shall within 5 days from the date of his final order, cause the same, together with the report of the surveyor, the petition and the releases, agreements or assessments in respect to damages, to be deposited and filed in the office of the district clerk; who shall note upon such order the date of such filing. It shall be the duty of such clerk to record such order, together with the plat of the surveyor in a proper book to be kept for that purpose.
